2012 is not only set to be the end of the world, but perhaps the greatest box office showdown in modern times as THE AVENGERS and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES are both coming out…both movies have a chance at rewriting box office history. THE DARK KNIGHT is already #2 on the all-time list and has now won the first battle: the new trailer was downloaded 12.5 million times in its first 24 hours on iTunes, breaking the record of 10 million downloads set in October by THE AVENGERS. Maybe they were just doing it to figure out what Bane was saying — but no matter what, it’s impressive.
What do you think? Which movie has YOU ruining a perfect good pair of jorts?
